Myrna was a member of Mount Morris Holden Lutheran Church and enjoyed worshipping at Calvary Lutheran Church in Oshkosh.
Myrna enjoyed many hobbies including camping, reading, knitting, stitching, word-search puzzles, and traveling. Whenever her husband asked, “do you want to go…? she would jump at the opportunity.
